Holmes happy with improvement

J.B. Holmes got off to a great start with a 4-under 67 on Thursday.

J.B. Holmes knew he was playing better than his scores indicated.

Particularly that disappointing 80 he shot last Saturday in the third round at Spyglass Hill last week on the way to a missed cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

"It was just kind of one of those weeks where a couple bad things happened and I didn’t putt as well," Holmes said simply. "All of a sudden I put up a pretty big number out there."

Not so on a blustery Thursday during the first round of the Northern Trust Open, though.

Holmes’ score finally reflected the way he felt he’d been hitting the ball when he fired a 68 that left him one shot off the lead held by Phil Mickelson. The big-hitter from Kentucky. who set the tone for the day when he birdied his first three holes, was tied with Hunter Mahan.

“I really felt pretty good this week practicing and coming up to this golf course,” Holmes said. “I really enjoy playing here. I like the layout of this golf course. I felt like I could shoot a pretty good score today.”
